Recent work has demonstrated that hydrogen peroxide functions as a signaling molecule controlling different essential processes in plants and mammals, which can be produced by superoxide dismutase (SOD) and xanthine oxidase (XO) and decomposed by catalase (CAT), respectively. Progeny diapause of the silkworm, Bombyx mori, is induced by diapause hormone (DH) and the expression of DH gene in the maternal generation has been determined. In order to investigate the relationship between the… CONTINUE READING
